Weekend project

Happy weekend. How is everyone is long weekend so far, hope all is good. The weather is not as bad as the report which really makes me happy. It's too soon to end Summer in early September, right?

We went out to do some shopping and it was crazy out there. We decide to have a quiet day at home and I use my time to make some cards.

First is for Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger:Light & Bright. I am inspired by the color of sofa and chairs with a little bit of flowers on the table. Try to keep it clean and simple.

 I start from scoring two line on both top and button of my white card base. Give it a bit texture. Die cut label from two cardstock and adhere together. Die cut raspberry strip and adhere on label. Draw white dots along the edge , stamp sentiment and adhere on card base. Tie on ribbon. Stamp flower from CL374 Big And Small Flowers with water mark ink and emboss with white embossing powder. Cut out and pop off on card with foam tape.

2nd is for OTWC Challenge#23. I am inspired by the Chandelier and the wedding theme. I really want a bold and exaggerate card. I think I have it.

Stamp the S5264 Antique Flower Background with Black ink on red card base. Stamp H5327 Small Chandelier and sentiment from CL360 Best Wishes set with watermark ink and emboss with black fine emboss powder. Color gems with blue marker and adhere on card. Adhere ruffled black ribbons.
I learn how to ruffle the ribbon from super talented Ashley Cannon Newell. She has a great video tutorial. Got to check it out.

Final one is made for Paper Craft September Challenge feature newsprint, ledger paper and vintage text......
I LOVE my Hero Arts CG179 Rose Background.
First run my beige card base throw my Big Shot with my new Sizzix emboss folder, Starring Night#2. Love love this folder, it covers the entire A2 card. I mean entire.
Trim beige and kraft strip, pinch corner. Stamp CG125 Friends Definition with Rich Cocoa Dye ink on kraft one. Sentiment CL156 Treasure The Moment with the same ink and adhere together with foam tape and adhere on card base. For the rose, I stamp the roses on white cardstock with Rich Cocoa Dye ink and color the flowers and leaves with Distress ink from Ranger. (Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint) Cut out and adhere on card with foam type. Love how the color blends together and turn into a soft tune rose.
